Year 2

Year 2!

Now that we are fully settled and in the swing of school life, here's an update of the exciting things we have done and will be doing in the future.

In literacy, we have been focusing on traditional stories; describing characters and writing our own stories. We will be starting a poetry unit and completing some Christmas writing too!

In numeracy, we are continuing to learn the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, which you can practise at home. Currently, the children are learning to tell the time. Any practise at home will be very beneficial. We will also be moving on to working with money.


We have just started a design technology unit on vehicles. The children will be constructing their own vehicle for Santa, due to a terrible break down with his sleigh.
